    Hey Hey Vanilla Zilla, glad to see you guys still kickin' it! Too bad I didn't get to ride with you guys more last Oct, but there's always next year....I'm living through your pics still, so keep them coming. Say Hi to the St. George clan.

    Very nice fellas. Kurt, how large was your drop? Didn't you just get done replacing a set of taco'd rims? Bummer. Maybe you should step up to the 6.1's.

    Photo Request

    Hi there. Shamelessly begging for a certain pic to help me make it until next Spring's trip.

    On the spur trail out to the end of Goose, there is a tight right through some sand, leading into a pretty steep rock up-move. It might be called the "bee-itch", but not sure.

    So next time you and the crew are out there, how about doing a favor for a snowbound guy?

    (Plus, I want to see a Pack making that climb -- it pushes me a bit on the Spot)

    Here is a future Pack owner, current Spot owner, on his previous bike (Voodoo) not making it up that section. One out of three isn't bad. Hey, is that egg burrito vomit on his stem?

    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    kosmo, this isn't the beeatch, but it's close. Here's a sequence that tscheezy forwarded to me that shows him powering his Pack. I know he's not one to toot his own horn and post pics of himself, so I'll take the liberty. Hope they show in the correct order and hope it gives you a fix. Most pics don't show true slope angles, but this one looks steep! Way to grunt it out Phillip. Not sure who the photog was, but good job!

    Lycra has never tacoed a rim, and he certainly didn't do it on this drop. Bob the wheelbuilder is in the process of building up LFR's new DT 5.1's.

    Oh, the drop was at least 6' or more!! The boys think it's bigger than the one over at Lil Creek. I am not sure Wheelbuilders rims can taco. I can't wait to see the 5.1's in action. Hope you and the loved ones are doing well.

    Nice. I distinctly remember failing this particular climb at Goose. Right before the end of the trail at the overlook, right.
